All I can say to our American friends is wake up and smell the coffee.....we have had pricing based roughly on usage and "Fair Usage Policies" which are undefined for a few years...and it sucks....Alasdair

thanx for the heads up!
luckily for us in germany, consumer protection laws wont allow "fair use", because "fair use" is not defined, and it is therefore unclear what you are buying.
our ISPs either provide *un-*limited (true flatrate) OR the bandwidth/GB limit must be specified.
unfortunately, this is not true for other EU-countries, such as austria... :-(

Besides in the end it will come down to the consumer making adjustments and choices. DSL has already found out that one size all you can eat does not work and came up with multiple unlimited packages. Because that is an oxymoron, all that really happened was some consumers felt better paying the price they felt was reasonable.iPhone
